Brownback's budget office recommends funding cut to higher education

Brownback's plan also includes making higher education less affordable for low-income students, so the students getting degrees are from mainly upper-income families. This will perpetuate inequality, whereas a good degree in the past was an equalizer that made the slogan about working hard and getting ahead meaningful.

Isn't K-12 on the chopping block too, given that it's about half of the state budget?

State support enables academic departments to be independent, not prostituted to one interest or another. The Kochs have bought control of Florida State U's departments of economics and business. FSU can only hire profs who say stuff the Kochs agree with. Does that sound like a way to achieve quality? Ha!

If Kansans and Americans don't throw the Kochie-head politicians out of power now, forcefully into the street on their tailbones, and stop the subversion of democracy by big money, they're in for several generations of misery until maybe their grandchildren learn how to be revolutionaries and overthrow the plutocrats.

Statehouse Live: Democrats launch school funding website to counter Brownback's

Governor Brownback, vanguard of the stupid class, has set out to advance the interests of the stupid and take revenge on all of his classmates who made B's and A's while he was barely earning C's. Stupid people of the world, rise up and throw your dunce caps out the window. You now finally have the power to make the dark light of ignorance shine all across this normally intelligent state until the last true fact has been forgotten.

Kansas tax act most regressive in nation

Convert the Cedar Crest mansion into a massage parlor or brothel?
Provide free pot as well as pots of coffee to the state legislators?
Hire a member of the Gambino family to be in charge of the state bank examiners as well as the chairman of the gaming commission?
Offer political asylum and the job of Juvenile Authority chief to the African warlord who's been in the news lately for conscripting children to his army?

I've gotta run to lunch now, but you can think of some more great ideas. And they should be passed on to Governor Brownback himself instead of left to languish on the hard drives of the Lawrence Journal World.

FalseHopeNoChange, you're complaining about LIBERALS creating this unfair tax structure? You need to go back to school, son. It's the conservatives who want working stiffs to pay more while their rich friends pay less. But ask a Koch brother and they'd say progressive taxation is the commie way. Makes me feel like joining the commies! Or flying back in time to the Eisenhower era when the top tax rate was 91%.

As I posted previously on the Gov's tax bill, the stuff will hit the fan soon and everyone who thought the plan sounded good will have occasion to rethink their views. Might make a wreck of the school system, housing market and state agencies though. I wish I were in a position to sell out and leave the state now and beat the rush.
